COMAU - MATE-XB Exoskeleton

Battery-free wearable robotic exoskeleton. Comau’s non-powered wearable exoskeleton – MATE-XB – stores human energy in a spring, helping workers lift heavy objects and move cumbersome loads with less physical effort and

Designed specifically to reduce lower back pain during lifting and repetitive tasks,  the MATE-XB (Extreme Back) is a motor and battery-free exoskeleton that provides assistance to lower back muscles to create short and long-term relief.

Easy to wear and quickly adjustable to fit any body frame, the lightweight carbon fiber structure is water, dust, and element resistant for indoor and outdoor use, even in highly corrosive environments. It supports workers handling loads of up to 55 lb. (25 kg).

MATE-XB replicates physiological movements to provide lumbar support and allows full mobility of the entire body. It also features a quick on/off switching functionality, allowing users to regulate the exoskeleton without interrupting the task at hand.


  • Assistance is proportional to the torque generated by the upper part of the body
  • Assistance up to 55 lb. (25 kg)
  • Possibility of tuning the amount of support over 5 levels
  • No hindrance while walking
  • Breathable and bio-compatible materials
  • Wide contact area to distribute reaction forces without causing high-force points
  • Allows users to move freely

Better Ergonomic Performance

Easy to wear and quickly adjustable to fit virtually any body frame, the MATE-XB exoskeleton suit is specifically designed to improve ergonomics during lifting and repetitive tasks.

It does so without using motors or batteries by providing passive assistance to the lower back and supporting the user when bending with the legs (squatting), bending forward, or during the repetitive lifting of loads.

COMAU - New Racer-5-0.80 COBOT

A New Paradigm in General Industry Robotics

Comau Racer5 COBOT is the only collaborative robot

 that can automatically switch from industrial robot speed to collaborative speed when a human operator enters in its working area.

It combines flexibility and collaborative safety features with high-performance repeatability and accuracy and allows reducing cycle times while ensuring better productive throughput.


  • 5 Kg payload
  • 0.809 m reach
  • 0.03 mm repeatability
  • Collaborative/non-collaborative speed switch
  • Up to 500 mm/s cartesian speed in collaborative mode
  • Up to 6 m/s cartesian speed in non-collaborative mode
  • Safe Collision Detection function – PL d CAT. 3 certified by TÜV Süd


  • High repeatability and accuracy
  • Racer-5 industrial robot speed when no human operator nearby for an increased productivity
  • Electrical and air connections near the wrist avoiding external harness
  • Immediate awareness of cobot status due to LED stripe
  • Long life cycle thanks to mechanical robustness
  • Efficiency and flexibility of the cycle
  • Reduction of spaces for automation
  • Simplified process inspection and quality control
